Neapolitan Mastiff

Ease of Training
Guard Dog


  • He's an ancient breed that can be traced back to the Persian, Mesopotamia, Egypt and Asia to war dogs used by the Roman army

Personality and Behavior

  • He's reliable, loyal and peaceful
  • He's got a mind of his own and can be quite stubborn
  • He's very protective of his home and family
  • He's wary of strangers
  • He's large, strong, and powerful
  • His intimidating looks makes him a good guard dog
  • He slobbers and drools something terrible!
  • He doesn't bark unless there's a good reason to
  • He's peaceful with children but because of his strength and size may unintentionally cause them harm by sitting on them or knocking them over


  • He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.


  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
